Depends on how much you want to take on, really. Most digital cameras, and
especially DSLRs, provide a whole slew of metadata in addition to the
image(s). That might be important information for some people, although for
others it would be irrelevant.

Also, some of the attributes mentioned above are not always as obvious as
they might seem. For example, what does 'create date' mean? The date the
original photo was shot, the date it was last edited, or the date it was
added to the content repository? Are two image sizes (original and
thumbnail) sufficient, or would you want other sizes in between?

Just some more food for thought.
